w/ R.R. PERKINS// LAZY// NYXNYX

Martin Bisi, a New York indie rock performer and record producer has been at a crossroads of indie, punk, avant garde, noire/cabaret rock, and electronic music since the early 80’s in New York City.

At a recording studio he started in 1981 with the help of Brian Eno, Martin Bisi has realized albums by Sonic Youth, Swans, Dresden Dolls, Pop 1280 (Sacred Bones), White Hills (Thrill Jockey), Africa Bambaataa, John Zorn, Herbie Hancock’s Rockit, Boredoms, Foetus, Helmet, Unsane, Serena Maneesh, US Maple, Jon Spencer’s Boss Hog, and countless other indie, experimental and post-punk records.

In his band’s set, Bisi plays guitar and sings, and performs songs from his album Ex Nihilo on Pennsylvania label, La Société expéditionnaire. The band swings between the heavier post-rock of the songs, and ambient soundscapes that feature the density and orchestral layering notable on many of Bisi’s productions. His vocal style is very varied, covering Hardcore, dream/shoe-gaze, and even death metal.
